Pope said the Catholic Church has been caring and protecting the poor since its beginning some 2,000 years ago,
It's hard to believe this is a headline, but there you have it.
He put an interesting spin on the Epiphany. He said giving to the poor isn't communism.
Nobody criticizing his assertions about the Church before him ever said giving to the poor is an invention of communism.
What we said was, this is communism: The pope repeated that there should be a better distribution of wealth
Working people are giving 40% of their paycheck for the poor. Many of us work or contribute to the poor on top of that contribution. His econcomics collapses the whole system and then tyrants take over.
Of course he wouldn't know the burdens of working people. Judging from his actions with Cuba, the tyranny and oppression doesn't bother him.
Every time my mother saw a bishop on television, she would yell 'get a job'. I would be appalled, but I am beginning to understand the reasons why she did.
Taking the possessions I've worked for to give to people who don't is a sentence of slavery. That's why every country that does it is a cruel tyranny.
When a country is built upon handing out free fish, the recipients are at the mercy of the tyrants giving them handouts. They control religious freedom. They imprison and murder. That's why it's never worked in any country that ever tried it.
Pope Francis considers Castro to be a hero because of the handouts but the people suffering under the tyranny see the Pope's actions as cruel indifference.
Maybe Pope Francis and Cardinal O'Malley believe the cruelty and oppression of the people and the destruction of freedom to worship as a worthwhile price to pay for the 'redistrubution'. I don't know. But any way you slice redistribution, it's communism.
You teach a man to fish and let him provide for his own family.
